    NVIDIA Corporation today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 ended July 27, 2008. For the second quarter of fiscal 2009, revenue decreased to $892.7 million compared to $935.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2008, a decrease of five percent. For the six months ended July 27, 2008, revenue increased to $2.05 billion compared to $1.78 billion for the six months ended July 29, 2007, an increase of 15 percent.

    During the second quarter of fiscal 2009, NVIDIA recorded a $196 million charge against cost of revenue to cover anticipated customer warranty, repair, return, replacement and associated costs arising from a weak die/packaging material set in certain versions of our previous generation MCP and GPU products used in notebook systems.

    NVIDIA's results for the second quarter of fiscal 2009, computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), included a net loss of $120.9 million, or a loss of $0.22 per share. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2009, which excludes stock-based compensation charges, the non-recurring warranty charge against cost of revenue, and the associated tax impact, was $74.5 million, or $0.13 per diluted share.

    GAAP net income for the six months ended July 27, 2008 was $55.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $305.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the six months ended July 29, 2007. Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended July 27, 2008, which excludes stock-based compensation charges, the non-recurring warranty charge against cost of revenue, and the associated tax impact, was $286.2 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to $362.5 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, for the six months ended July 29, 2007.

    "Our Q2 financial performance was disappointing. The desktop PC market around the world weakened during the quarter. And our miscalculation of competitive price position further pressured our desktop GPU business. We have a great product line-up and, having taken the necessary pricing actions, we are strongly positioned again. Our focus now is to drive cost improvements and to further enhance our competitiveness through the many exciting initiatives we have planned for the rest of the year," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA. "In contrast, the rest of our businesses did not exhibit the same dynamics as our desktop business. The notebook GPU, MCP, and Professional Solutions groups grew a combined 27 percent year-over year."

    Mr. Huang added, "Though we approach the near term with caution, we remain very optimistic about the expanding universe of visual computing and the exciting growth opportunities made possible by CUDA, our general purpose parallel computing architecture."

    NVIDIA also announced an increase of $1 billion to its stock repurchase program under which it may now purchase up to $2.7 billion of its common stock. Through July 27, 2008, NVIDIA has repurchased 68.0 million shares under the stock repurchase program for a total cost of $1.16 billion.

    The repurchases will be made in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions, or in structured share repurchase programs, and may be made from time to time or in one or more larger repurchases. The program will be conducted in compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Rule 10b-18 and applicable legal requirements and shall be subject to market conditions and other factors.

    The program does not obligate NVIDIA to acquire any particular amount of common stock and the program may be modified or suspended at any time at the Company's discretion. The purchases will be funded from available working capital.

    Second Quarter Fiscal 2009 Highlights and Recent Developments:

    • Launched multiple industry-leading products:
    • Appointed first two CUDA Centers of Excellence – University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and University of Utah: The CUDA Centers of Excellence Program recognizes and rewards schools for their pioneering work in parallel computing education along with the integration of the CUDA software environment into their curriculum.
    • Announced the NVIDIA and Stanford Folding@home Partnership: GeForce GPUs run Folding@home protein simulations 140 times faster than traditional processors, which we believe will dramatically accelerate the search for cures to life-threatening diseases such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, and Parkinson's disease.
    NVIDIA will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its second quarter fiscal 2009 financial results and current financial prospects today at 2:00 P.M. Pacific Time (5:00 P.M. Eastern Time). To listen to the call, please dial (212) 231-2901. A live Web cast (listen-only mode) of the conference call will be held at the NVIDIA investor relations Web site www.nvidia.com/ir and at http://www.streetevents.com. The Web cast will be recorded and available for replay until the Company's conference call to discuss its financial results for its third quarter fiscal 2009.

    So a net loss of 120 million dollars, eh? They have enough money saved to easily take the hit and prepare for a new GPU generation.. Competition is good!

    Yeah its quite a big loss, probably due to the fact they had to sell the GTx200 series below cost.

    Should mean they get another card out pretty quick to beat the 4870X2 on a smaller fab and starting bringing their profits back up. Hopefully in time for my 90 day step-up :D

    LoL, I was going to say something about that too. Confused me.

    No one has touched on it yet, but they sure picked a good time to buy back their stocks.
    I mean their low before the crash was $18.
